    Wheel well liner

    I am restoring a 95 T/A. The wheel wells had some kind of spray in liner from the factory (very hard to remove). Can anyone tell me what it was and where I can get a sutible replacement to spray back in?

    What does it look like? Is it textured like gray and wrinkley or black and rough?

    On our older cars, I usually strip off the old stuff before applying new undercoating in the wheel wells. You can use a propane torch to warm up the existing undercoating and then scrape it off. I have found that a paint stick works better than an actual metal scraper. Plastic scraper will melt or get soft. After the old stuff is stripped off, mask off the fender lip and suspension components and then spray on new undercoating. Both 3M and Rustoleum make nice versions that seem to hold up well. Most recently, I re-did the rear wheel wells on our '85 Monte SS:

    The best description I can give is Bed Liner. The texture was very rough. It was black when it was new but had turned gray. I sprayed it with 3m rubberized undercoating several years ago and it looked good for a while, but it turned gray also and started to peel off. I think it must have been some kind of Spray Urethane but I cant find anything that is markted for this type of use. I tried several different solvents and paint removers but none of them had any real effect on it.

    Take the propane torch to it and it'll be very easy to remove. Keep the torch moving and gently heat the undercoating from a distance.
